Rassilon's White-Point Star has fallen to Earth and been found by the Master. On the ship, the Doctor is still repairing the systems. Wilf talks to him about many things and tries to have the Doctor take the gun to save himself by killing the Master. The Doctor refuses and Wilf begins to cry over his fruitless efforts, prompting the Doctor to hug him. A broadcast from the Master reaches the ship; he has found the diamond. It can only mean the Time Lords are returning. Wilfred considers this good but the Doctor says that the Time War had changed the Time Lords, making them far more dangerous than any of his enemies. The Doctor has repaired the ship, but Addams will not have them going to Earth. The Doctor seizes control of the ship and speeds towards Earth. Rossiter and Wilf take charge of the asteroid lasers and blast away the missiles the Master launches at them. Addams plots a course for Naismith's mansion and the Doctor jumps from the ship, crashing through the skylight and into the Immortality Gate room. He is too late. The Master has brought the Time Lords back. Not only is the Master in the room, but so are the Time Lord Council. The Master intends to implant himself in them, but Rassilon uses his gauntlet to restore humanity. He tells the humans present to kneel as "the ascent" begins. The Master is confused; the Doctor angrily tells him that not only the Time Lords are coming back, but so is the planet. Gallifrey begins to materialise near Earth, fulfilling the prophecy that "it" is returning.
Wilf has returned to help the Doctor, but frees a trapped man in the control booth, trapping himself. The Master thinks it wonderful the Time Lords are restored to the universe, but the Doctor says with the Time Lock broken, all the other horrors from the Time War, sealed in the Time Lock as well – the reason for the destruction – have been released as well; not only the Daleks, but the Skaro Degradations, the Horde of Travesties, the Nightmare Child, the Could've Been King with his Army of Meanwhiles and Neverweres; the war turned into hell, which is exactly what the Master has unleashed above Earth. The Master delights at the thought of such chaos but the Doctor tells him even the Time Lords can't survive such an onslaught. Rassilon reveals they had planned for this since the Time War. All creation and all of time will be destroyed and the Time Lords will ascend to a higher form of existence, becoming pure consciousness. The paradox will rip the Time Vortex apart. The Master asks to join them, but the President disgustedly refuses him.
Rassilon prepares to kill the Master when the Doctor aims Wilf's gun at Rassilon. The Master goads him on, urging him to kill the President and claim Gallifrey. At this, the Doctor spins and aims at the Master. The Master realises the reason; the link that brought the Time Lords to Earth is inside his head, and if he dies, the link is broken, returning them to the Time Lock. He points out that killing the President would have the same effect. As the Doctor frets on what to do, Rassilon sneers, "The final act of your life is murder. But which one of us?" The Doctor makes eye contact with one of the "disgraced" Time Lords kneeling behind the Lord President. She is the mysterious woman that Wilfred saw. She nods solemnly to the Doctor and behind him. The Doctor whirls and aims at the Master once again. As the Master's face falls, the Doctor says, "Get out of the way." The Master jumps away from the White-Point diamond. The Doctor shoots it, ordering the Time Lords back into the Time War. Gallifrey vanishes back into the Time Lock. Rassilon refuses to die alone and prepares to kill the Doctor, but the Master orders him to get out of the way and attacks Rassilon with his electric powers. This blasts the Lord President back into the Time War. There is a bright flash of light, and the Time Lords, the Master, Rassilon and Gallifrey are gone.
The Doctor struggles to his feet, not quite believing he has survived. He smiles happily, safe, then his face changes to shock as he hears four hesitant knocks portending his death. Wilfred is trapped in a radiation containment device and can only be released at the cost of the Doctor's own life. After moaning that this is his reward, he concludes he has lived too long. Despite Wilfred's protests, the Doctor releases him, receiving a massive level of radiation poisoning. For a few seconds, the Doctor thinks he has survived even this. Then the effects on his body show his tenth (or eleventh) regeneration has started. It is a slow one. He takes Wilfred home and promises to see him one last time. When Wilfred asks where he's going, the dying Doctor says he's going to get his reward... The Doctor travels to many places. He saves Martha and Mickey, who are now married, from a Sontaran and Luke Smith from being hit by a car; he exchanges a meaningful look with Sarah Jane and goes to an alien bar to connect Captain Jack with Alonso Frame. Afterwards, he visits a book signing of A Journal of Impossible Things by Verity Newman, Joan Redfern's great-granddaughter. He pays a visit to Donna Noble's wedding, where he gives Wilf and Sylvia the gift of a winning lottery ticket to pass on to her. He also visits all his other past companions.
Finally, the Doctor returns to the Powell Estate on New Year's Day 2005. Hidden in the shadows, he tells Rose that she will have a great year. As she leaves smiling, the pain of regeneration sets in. The Doctor trudges towards the TARDIS, but collapses in the street. Ood Sigma appears to him to tell him that the entire Universe will sing him to his sleep. The Doctor lifts himself up and staggers to the TARDIS as Sigma tells him, "This song is ending, but the story never ends." The Doctor enters the TARDIS, tossing his coat on one of the coral structures and notes regeneration energy coming out of his hand. He sets the TARDIS on course for space as he circles the console. He says, "I don't want to go." Golden energy radiate from his hand and head as he breathes heavily. He stretches his arms to regenerate into his next incarnation.
And this is where our journey begins. The doctor is in a new form and the time lords gone "forever" with new cracks in time happening randomly, it's allowing for people thought long gone to come through the cracks into this time. What aliens will try to take on the Doctor first... What new adventures with this "new" "old" doctor have? Join and find out.
